This year the residents of the 40th District for the State House of Representatives are fortunate to have a very qualified group of candidates to choose from. I am writing to endorse Mike McCready, who I believe is the best candidate to serve the people of our district.
As the former Supervisor of Bloomfield Township, I had the privilege of working with Mike as Commissioner for the City of Bloomfield Hills on many issues of importance between our communities. I have always been impressed with his dedication to his constituents and his ability to use his vast business success to the betterment of local governance. He is a keen listener who is able to bridge differences of opinion and find workable common sense solutions. The skills he has exhibited in business and local government are exactly what are needed at the State level to restore the economic stability of Michigan.
As a successful businessman, Mike has had to balance budgets and make tough decisions along the way. As our State Representative, I am confident he will make certain our great State never reverts to the financial chaos of the past, and assure state government lives within their means.
For far too long, the youth of our state have had to leave Michigan following their education to find meaningful career opportunities. Using his business experience, Mike is committed to working with Governor Snyder to create a stable Michigan economy that creates jobs for our children for generations to come.
It is time we elected a proven leader who is committed to stopping the partisan bickering that prohibits progress, and instead focus on delivering results. I encourage you to elect Mike McCready as our State Representative on August 7, 2012.
Retired Supervisor of Bloomfield Township
